Exclamation Fender strat 3 way switch 2 1 vol tone 2 humbuckers

This Christmas i received a new HH Pickuard for my strat, a dimarzio 3 way switch, and 2 dimarzio evolutions (neck and bridge). Ive been looking for wiring guides litterally everywhere! I can't find one the fits me or works. I want to do a coil split between the 2 pickups also obviously. Im gonna be using 1 volume and 2 tones also. Help!!!!

Thank you.

You may need to buy a 5-way, that's all I could find.

And Dimarzios use a different colour code for wires from Seymour Duncans so that's pretty handy too.

Ok, I ordered 3 500k pots, 2 .047 mf caps, and some wire. Now this is a question some people dont ask. On the back of the pot, how do i make that big pool of solder. Im new to soldering sorta, but not really lol.

Rough up the back up the pots with some sandpaper. Make sure you get the backs of the pots hot enough too (I use a 40w with a bigger tip for this job).

Re: Fender strat 3 way switch 2 1 vol tone 2 humbuckers

everything is wired correctly i double checked. everything almost works... the bridge pickup works perfect, but when i put the switch into the middle it doesnt split the coils of my pickups. In neck position, its sound EXACTLY like the middle. It doesnt change at all. Could it be possible that i have the 3 way switch installed backwards. Also do i solder wires across the Hot Output like this diagram LINK: seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=3ws_trans:LINK (sorry i cant post links yet)
